Success Stories

We had a brief interview with Madhav, a past student of AccioJob. He is a graduate from Maharaja Agrasen Institute of Technology, Delhi in Computer Science and Engineering. He has been working in TokoPedia as a Backend Developer for the past three months now. Here it goes:

How did you come to know of AccioJob? And why did you choose it above other training institutions?

I came to know about it from my college. They told us that there’s a startup called AccioJob and they’re teaching full stack web development and we need to pay after placement above 5 LPA. I had two reasons for choosing AccioJob- At that point of time, I was really looking for a job in Data Science. The pandemic was high then, and nobody was ready to give a job to a fresher like me. I was also engaged in doing some courses on my own, but that too had no benefit back then. AccioJob was a pre-planned course that gave you a straight path towards a job with all the help and support. I could not deny such an offer. Also, AccioJob being a startup and interacting with the founders, I thought that they are literally looking forward to making an actual impact. They’ll work harder than the already established firms. And that’s why I chose AccioJob.

How was your learning experience at AccioJob?

The overall teaching was pretty good, I would say. I would rate it a 4 out of 5. The efforts put in by our mentor, Harsh sir, were exceptional. He was very good at teaching and taught from the very basics of coding. Along with that, we also had sessions where people who were already established came to talk with us about their experiences and gave tips. That made us feel confident and helped us to know more about the corporate world. I loved Data Structures more than any other subject back then. I had known it before too, so it was something that came natural to me. Also, it is more likely related to back-end development, which I am currently working on.

How was your placement process at TokoPedia?

I had three rounds in the interview. The first round was a basic DSA interview. It included 3 questions of different difficulty levels and I was able to crack all of them. The second coding round had simple questions but in a twisted manner to which I had to provide coding solutions. I could solve them too. The third round was a simple HR round. Before giving interviews for TokoPedia, I had given interviews for 6 other companies to which I failed at one step or the other. But, the mentors at AccioJob, especially Yash, were quite motivating. It was the kind of support I needed at that time. This is also one of the things I loved about AccioJob, that they are very supportive.

How is your life at TokoPedia?

TokoPedia is an E-commerce company based in Indonesia. In India, we have 2 branches of the tech team, the backend team and the data science team. So, I am working in the Noida office. The environment at TokoPedia is fully focused on employees. They have all kinds of perks for their employees including health insurances too. They provide us with a lot of learning and collaboration platforms. They also provided 2-3 weeks of paid leave to all those who had someone in their family or who themselves were suffering from COVID during the second wave. They were also ready to provide any kind of financial support to us without any interest and stuff. Workload is not extreme. The work is very qualitative, so I enjoy whatever we do there. The teams and especially my leader, are quite supportive of me. Everyone is friendly and understands that you are a newcomer and it's absolutely okay to make mistakes!

Would you like to suggest something to the people who are currently studying at AccioJob?

The most important part that every student should focus upon is the learning aspect. Learn as much as you can from the mentors and then practice it on your own too. Because in the end it is you who has to sit in the interview. Also, a little tip for them could be to work on as many projects as you can. Try to build on different kinds of projects as much as possible because it will give you a glimpse of how it feels like in the corporate world. The projects you work on in real life are so much more than just DS Algo. Other than this, just be confident in your skills and don’t lose motivation. All the best!
